M%u2022E%u2022L Research Ltd is an independent market research company based in Birmingham. Each month M%u2022E%u2022L Research undertakes telephone market research interviews for a variety of councils, police forces, housing associations and other client organisations.

We are a Market Research Society (MRS) company partner and abide by both the MRS Code of Conduct and the Data Protection Act. You can check our accreditation with the Market Research Society by ringing their Freephone helpline: 0500 39 69 99.

We may have called you because you are the customer of one of our clients and they provided us with details of customers to contact. Alternatively, your number may have been generated at random by a process called Random Digit Dialling (RDD).

RDD is an entirely legal process. The reason for using RDD phone numbers is that it allows Market Researchers to contact a wide variety of people, including those who are registered with the telephone preference service (TPS) and/or ex-directory to provide them with an opportunity to participate in research.

Market research activities are exempt from the Telephone Preference Service (TPS) and ex-directory rules of %u2018cold calling%u2019 as we readily accept refusals to participate and are not involved in any form of sales or selling activity.

Just had a call from this number, claimed to be from Greater Manchester Police, doing research in the area. He claimed to have heard of the Telephone Preference Service, but was "allowed to make random dialled calles" for research purposes.

He then told me he only wanted to speak to males!

Bizarre!

Was annoyed by a call from this number. I'm desperately ill & the number they called me on is for family only - not given it out to anyone else so I don't know how they got it. Iim undergoing hospital treatment and had just fallen asleep after 3 days without any. This family only mobile number was bought specifically so that I could switch my regular mobile on silent when I'm resting & not get any nuisance calls. I think it has to have been randomly generated.

I keep being called by this number, saying they are Surrey police and want to investigate what security I have due to a recent spate of burglaries! I laugh because for one thing I don't live in Surrey and for another I would never tell them what security I have on my property! they keep ringing back though, despite them saying they will take me off their calls list.

Caller Company: Surrey county police!

David ChongPing - You should not be using RDD on TPS listed numbers - saying it is for market research purposes does not make it alright. Why can't arseholes like you get an education and then do something useful with you lives, rather than simply irritate people?

Got a call from this number a couple of days ago but we were not at home. Just got a call last 5 mins and, having checked the number out, I was ready for it. Female announced herself as MH Market Research (I think ..) and was calling 'on behalf of Hampshire Police'. 'No thank you', says me and put phone down. Sorted.

Caller Company: MH Market Research (?)

TPS ignorer. Blocked. Just treat him like any other scammer, if what he says about TPS is true, and I seriously doubt it, then what is the point of TPS? Isn%u2019t it meant for people who don%u2019t want the %u201Copportunity%u201D to be harassed by marketing and survey companies? So just block it and hope they figure out another way to make money without selling our free data. Maybe the survey commissioners like the police will notice the data is biased excluding people smart enough to block surveys.

Female caller saying she was doing a survey on behalf of Oxfordshire county council as a satisfaction survey . Wanting to know what residents of Oxfordshire thought about the county - questioned how my details had been obtained by the company - she said I had given permission to a 3rd party in the past - alarm bells started ringing she said she would take only 5 mins of my time - she asked for my postcode and then started to ask for details about council tax - at this point I ended the call . Having just read the comments above I am now glad that I ended the call as clearly a scammer

Missed call from this number - no message left. I always Google unknown numbers before ringing back.
So - glad I did.!!
It is transparently obvious from the earlier comments that this "so-called" Market Research Company employs disreputable if not unlawful deception in their scripts and blatantly ignore best practices.
Shame on them.!!
